of Barentshav class offshore patrol vessels consists of three vessels powered by liquefied natural gas. Ordered for the Norwegian Coast Guard, their main tasks are EEZ patrol, fishery inspection, search and rescue as well as tug readiness along the shore of Norway which is seeing increasing traffic from tankers.
The vessels are of the
Vik-Sandvik design VS 794 CGV, and were built by Myklebust Verft and operated by Remøy Management on behalf of the Norwegian Coast Guard.
The Coast Guard expects a 90% decrease in
NOx fume releases, and a 20% decrease in CO2 releases compared to a conventionally powered vessel of similar size.
